Description

Following his highly acclaimed quartet release 'Blui' of 2016, Pierre Dørge surrounds himself with all American colleagues - including trombonist Conrad Herwig, saxophonist Stephen Riley and cornetist Kirk Knuffke - who have a deep understanding of Dørge's unique soundscapes.

To say "Pierre Dørge" and not to follow it with "& New Jungle Orchestra" is almost impossible. Dørge created that small big band in 1980, which became a successful and stable vehicle for his adventurous music. They toured all over the world and built an impressive discography along the way. The guitarist/composer/bandleader, however, has never neglected to seek a new palette to draw his music in smaller ensembles.

"It's an inspired collection of musicians and all serve the material well, eight songs written by Dørge...When people think of Dørge, they tend to gravitate toward the NJO releases but his small-group recordings provide an excellent alternative and a more expansive picture of this unique guitarist." - Robert Iannapollo, NYC Jazz Record on 'Blui' (SCCD31797)

Personnel: Pierre Dørge (guitar), Kirk Knuffke (cornet), Stephen Riley (tenor saxophone), Conrad Herwig (trombone), Jay Anderson (bass), Adam Nussbaum (drums)
